Bayern Munich are set to play Villarreal at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday in the second leg of the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League.

Bayern Munich come into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over Markus Weinzierl's Augsburg in the Bundesliga. A late second-half penalty from Polish superstar Robert Lewandowski secured the victory for Julian Nagelsmann's Bayern Munich.

Villarreal, on the other hand, drew 1-1 against Marcelino's Athletic Bilbao in La Liga. A first-half goal from former Atletico Madrid attacker Raul Garcia for Athletic Bilbao was canceled out by a second-half goal from left-back Alfonso Pedraza for Villarreal.

Bayern Munich vs Villarreal Prediction

Bayern Munich were shocked by Villarreal in the reverse leg, but will remain the favorites to progress through to the next round. Robert Lewandowski, as usual, will be the man to watch out for and we expect him to get on the scoresheet.

Robert Lewandowski has told Barcelona that he wants to join the club, according to Sport ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ

Villarreal, on the other hand, seem to thrive in the biggest club competition. Having beaten Juventus to reach the quarter-finals, they were deserved victors against Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich, despite the deficit, should progress.

Prediction: Bayern Munich 2-0 Villarreal
